On Ash Wednesday Lent started. A long time ago that ment Catholics were advised to pray a lot, repent and give alms. It also ment to reduce or eschew the consumption of certain foods, for example meat. It seems that some people had clever ways to opt out of the meat abandonment though. They simply wrapped it in a piece of dough and pretended it didn’t happen. At least that is one of the food legends surrounding Maultaschen, the German version of ravioli. I grew up Catholic but this was more a tradition than a belief and we never observed Lent. But Maultaschen are delicious, no matter what, especially if they are meat free and nobody has to cheat. For this recipe you just have to hop over to All About Vegan Food, where you can find my contribution to their wonderful website. You should also have a look at their Instagram feed or their facebook page for lots of vegan food inspiration. If you love Maultaschen but are not so much into smoked tofu, you can also try out my tempeh version here.
